'The Incredible Hulk' is Brainless Fun -- and Little Elsenew

The movie is pretty much a take-it-or-leave-it affair: It's not bad for a summer no-brainer, but it's definitely not the vast improvement on the prior film its producers would like you to believe it is. It's pretty good, yet unremarkable.

Growth of a Franchisenew

For all its gimmicky mayhem, Transporter 2 is an improvement over the original, completely setting aside such yawn-inducing cinematic standbys as a romantic interest and realism.

Pet Soundsnew

No matter how hard Unleashed director Louis Letterier and star Jet Li try, they're working with atonal material, and can't have it both ways.
Gambit  |  David Lee Simmons  |  05-25-2005  |  Reviews
